The newly elected General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God, Reverend Dr Stephen Yenusom Wengam, reserved his comments on the controversial National Cathedral when asked about it on television.
Despite recently commending the Akufo-Addo-led government for building the edifice, Rev Wengam told Berla Mundi on TV3‘s New Day on Monday, January 16 that he would rather keep comments on the project to himself.
It is unclear the motive behind this new position adopted by the Founder and Leader of Cedar Mountain Chapel of the Assemblies of God.
But his comments on the National Cathedral during a courtesy call on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House are said to have deepened the controversy surrounding the project.
“For us Pentecostals, we know very well the value of a temple. Solomon has gone into history as a wise and great leader because he built a temple for God and it is a symbol that signifies the unity of our faith,” he had told President Akufo-Addo.
In the interview on TV3‘s New Day, Rev Dr Wengam, who takes over from Rev Prof Yaw Frimpong-Manso as head of the Assemblies of God, revealed how his father had prophesied his current position.
He said prior to his father’s death in 2007, he told him he will one day be elected the General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God.
His father, he admitted, was a devout deacon of the church.
Rev Dr Wengam also opened up on how he lost his younger siblings, most of whom did not grow to celebrate their first anniversaries.
